Where there is no vision, the people perish

Now is the time for all Americans to rally and support a leader who Providence has bestowed in this generation to bring about the change, which is not acceptable to some, but was inevitable.  They will realise that the time has come when lifestyles have to be changed if they need to survive.  Belts will have to be tightened;  the virtues of Thrift, Temperance and Sacrifice will have to be practised, and Cooperation will have to be the slogan for a better existence when mankind begin to realise that they are one, and need one another, and join hands together in a chain of friendship so as to achieve a world of peace and harmony.

Those of vision will see that the days of blood sucking CEO’S are over; the wealth that they stash away and waste in luxury, or pile up as unused compost while the fields are growing weeds,  could have helped those who really toiled to feed their avarice.  It could have provided them with a living wage, and  bonuses, so that they could provide for their families and enjoy a little vacation, instead of looking for two or three jobs to make ends meet.  Thanks to those philanthropists who who are sharing their bounty with their brothers.  But with all the wealth there is, much more could be done.

The bug of materialism has also bitten the preachers (not all of them) of the gospel of Jesus whose injunction is to “not lay up treasures on earth where moth and rust corrupt but to lay up treasures in heaven”.  But these preachers delve into the Old testament, the Hebrew scripture instead, and quote from the orders of a changing, jealous, vindictive and partial Lord  to vindicate their cupidity.  But hold!  the handwriting is on the wall.

Those who think that war can provide for the stability that is needed are sadly mistaken.  War can only destroy relationships and engender hatred which is a canker that eats into the moral fibre of men and nations.  We have to remember at all times that all men are brothers, and we are our brother’s keeper; and the injustice done to any section of humanity will affect humanity as a whole.
